    Facebook-state first, then sovereignty comes inevitably sooner or later. Israel won't be able nor willing to be the Jew among the nations more than it is aleady being singled out. I said it many times before, and repeat it now: This is a blessing in disguise for Israel. If it couldn't surrender the settlement enterprise by its own volition, this is the most peaceful way to do it for Israel's sake. It is better than years of terror and blood-spilling by Hamas, PIJ and Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the heart of hearts of Israel's civilian population. The separation barrier is in place, and it will become the border if Palestinians take the unilateral steps Israel took with the route of the barrier. Apparently, negotiations failed, and the collision of unilateral steps was the "road map": Disengagement, separation barrier, UN recognition of a facebook state, Israeli annexation of the tiny strips of land west of the separation barrier and large settlement blocks, Palestinian statehood east of it. The Gaza Hamastan spine will only be solved when the Jihadist tsunami, specially the Iranian regime, finally fals.
